If you want to be a convincing villain, you have to look the part.

And Henry Damon certainly does, having had surgery to remove the tip of his nose in an ongoing quest to look like Red Skull, the archenemy of Captain America, Britain’s Mirror newspaper reports.

The Venezuelan resident, 37, who is said to be happily married, already had bumps added to his forehead and arms to look like the Nazi bad guy from the Marvel comics. And he’s even going by the name “Red Skull” now.

“He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got around to doing it,” says a friend.

Seem a little excessive? Well, it is. But Damon’s doctor, who reportedly dropped out of medical school to focus on tattooing and extreme body surgery, says Damon isn’t crazy.

“Henry, aka Red Skull, is a physically and intellectually healthy person,” the doctor says. “He’s an excellent son, husband and father, who has an extreme taste for body modification.”

And he’s not done yet. He’s expected to get silicone implants on his cheekbones, chin and cheeks, and then dye his face red to complete the transformation.
